Mayo Clinic Radio: Advance Directives

Miss the show? Here is the podcast! Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 6-21-2014
On the next program, Saturday, June 21,  9 a.m. CDT, we'll tackle one of the most confusing topics in health care conversations today — advance directives.  Our expert guests Timothy Moynihan, M.D., and Sheryl Ness, R.N., will address questions like ... what IS an advance directive? Isn't it the same thing as a living will? What should be included in the document and who should you choose to make these decisions for you?  Where should an advance directive be kept and how often should it be updated?
We'll find out the answers to these questions and more on the next Mayo Clinic Radio.
Myth or Matter of Fact:  An advance directive means do not treat.
